Please join us for our second webinar of the year! Karla Childers joins us from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer where her primary responsibility has been leading and coordinating various ethics-based, science and technology policy projects.

Foundations for Deploying Trustworthy AI

AI is growing and so are concerns around applied ethics in technology.

Advances in transplantation are moving rapidly including transplants of the hand, face, uterus and eye; xenografting from pigs, freezing organs and obtaining organs from the dead in novel ways. These advances in medicine and bioengineering raise a host of challenging ethical and policy issues.

Proceedings: Promising Practices in the Responsible Conduct of Research

The responsible conduct of research (RCR) is foundational to good science and engineering.

Submit Resources to the OEC

The OEC invites submissions of high-quality ethics education resources in the areas of engineering and science, including the social sciences, for review and inclusion in its collection. Resources can be submitted via the OEC Resource Submission Form. See our Resource Submission page for more information.

In Memoriam 

W. Carl Lineberger 1939 -2023

Carl received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. at the Georgia Institute of Technology and served in the Army Ordnance Corps during the Vietnam War. He was a teacher, mentor, and research scientist in the Department of Chemistry, University of Colorado, for 52 years. He was appointed by President Obama to the National Science Board in 2010 and served in that capacity until 2022. The American Chemical Society and the American Physical Society, both of which he was a member, granted him their top awards. In 1983, he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences; in 2015, he received their NAS Award in the Chemical Sciences, given for both scientific achievement and benefit to humanity.

Carl Lineberger’s enduring impact on the scientific community is broader than the important paradigms he contributed from his laboratory. He was described by a colleague as having been instrumental in creating the “magic” of JILA, a joint institute between the National Institute of Science and Technology and the University of Colorado devoted to research into the frontier interface between chemistry and physics. He molded a style of collaborative research starting in the 1970s that continues today.

Carl will be remembered not just for the heights of his science, but for the depth of his humanity.

Lastly, we would like to remember him for his contributions to the OEC as a member of the Advisory Group.
